Found this place on second night of visit. Nice friendly atmosphere and warm and cosy. Drinks average price and good food and choices.still very cheap compared to the UK. Worth a visit to rest the legs and chill with a nice beer in the heat.

Don't go here unless you are really hungry, I've never seen such portion sizes, food good and fast service, party atmosphere but a little to big and busy for my liking

Terrific value. Three people shared one order of pork knuckle. Our meal for four people with apps, drinks, one pork knuckle, roast chicken entree, sides and dessert was more than we could eat and cost 184 plz/£36/$46. Great value for traditional food in a festive atmosphere with live music. The kitchen is visible through glass and is quite a well... More

This restaurant is located right at the base of the hill that serves Wawelem Castle and Cathedral. It is a prime location for tourists. It is a huge restaurant with a lot of seating. We enjoyed our meals (mostly traditional Polish items), but it took exceptionally long (nearly 20 minutes) to first be served without the restaurant being exceptionally busy.... More

Food was great, beer was cheap and it was great to be in among so many locals! Live band was a highlight! Only drawback was that we had to flag down 3 separate servers for the bill - but we were on holiday so it wasn't too big of a deal.

Thank ERogers53
